Beat Stofer

Chef Beat Stofer is the enthusiastic and enterprising leader of Balm Restaurant. Stofer serves first-class Swiss cuisine for Lucerne locals. His best-sellers, knuckle ravioli, and lime risotto, attract guests from all around the area. Another celebrated dish by chef Beat is the Balche from Lake Lucerne, braised in a Römertopf, with champagne sauce. It has been included on the menu unchanged for decades – and will remain on there as long as Megger fisherman Nils Hofer continues supplying his top-quality fish.
